Song of Songs -11 says "How delightful is your love my sister, my bride!How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume than any spice." Only in marriage may a man and woman enjoy expressing their romantic and sexual desires toward each other.This love is based on our relationship with Christ and is not dependent on feelings we may or may not have for a fellow-believer.
He or she is making a commitment to have care and concern for the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental welfare of his or her marriage partner.What about a romantic relationship without moving toward marriage?Isn't there another kind of relationship described in Scripture where a man and woman can share romantic intimacy with some physical intimacy without moving toward marriage? This kind of relationship does not exist in the Scriptures.A third relationship God describes in the Bible is marriage.Marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman that binds them together for life.
God is our Father and other Christians are our brothers and sisters in Christ. Our Father deeply loves and desires that we show love to each other, that is seek each other's highest spiritual good.
